Good Show but some quality issues
This is a good show and worthy of a spot in any collection. However, there are some issues with the source quality. Throughout there is some moderate hiss, also the songs in the download are out of order and there is a gap in the middle of the Playin'.
Fairly routine 1st set (for that period). Really long, jazzy PITB, shows the direction they were going at that point and hints at some unrealized potential for jazz-fusion that definitely carried into the Blues For Allah phase. Really long, dreamy Phil & Ned which carries over into Wharf Rat. The Dead were dreaming on this night. Amusing banter with Phil singing Bobby a cracked Happy Birthday. Nice, rockin' U.S. Blues to finish out the 1st night of a legendary run. Excellent sound quality, nice to hear a multi-track Wall of Sound.
